Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

John Neufeld on Teaching John’s Call to Believe

Recommended Posts


John-Neufeld-300x300.jpgAfter 30 years of pastoral ministry, John Neufeld teaches the Bible via radio and podcast through Back to the Bible Canada. Neufeld has been teaching through the Gospel of John on the broadcast in sections. Since the apostle uses a number of words repeatedly throughout his Gospel, the person teaching it must understand what John means by these words and why he uses them.

In this conversation, Neufeld works his way through some of these key words including “believe,” “life,” “eternal life,” and “sign,” as well as what John means when he speaks of God’s choosing those who would belong to him.

You can listen to the episode here.
